- I hve repaired a great many very small dropouts which occured mostly on d1 and d3
- the static that is present in d1t03 has been greatly reduced
- the staic that was present in d1t04 has been removed
- the intermittent static in d2t08-d2t12 hs been reduced so that it is now almost inaudible
- the following patches have been made using the source seeded by David Hollister (shnid 19525)
d1t15 - 0:45-0:47
d3t06 - 1:52-1:54, 3:57-4:05
d4t05 - 4:35-4:425
- a number of volume adjustments have been made
- some noise reduction has been applied
- remastering done with iZotope Oxone and Waves plugins
- d1t05 has large dropouts at 0:31 for 1 second and at 2:37 for 8.5 seconds which are not repairable.
- I re-tracked d2 and also decided to leave Lovelight as one glorious chunk of music!

Subject: Historically important weeks?anti-war etc
In New Haven a guy was running around saying 'we just took a 'bite out of the Whale ,' or something to that effect. He was reffering to the bombing of the 'whale'(sp?) building that had just occurred.
Most people now dont have a clue of the student, political, anti-war atmosphere at the time. But these weeks in May of 70 before and after Kent State were the peak after the Chicago 'days of Rage' at the democratic convention in 68. People now who are even peripherally aware of this period in history still dont understand the REAL seriousness, tenseness of the times. Note: From the republican,(far right) end of the spectrum, G. Gordon Liddy writes that his view was that the country was in a 'civil war.' He uses this as some sort of excuse to explain HIS illegal, conspiratorial activities.
Bottom Line: The audience tapes from this period(weslyan etc) are interesting documents of the time if not prime Grateful Dead listening material. It is a shame though that more sounboard tapes dont exist as these shows were also an important period in the history of the band as well as the nation
Subject: how they played it
Why can't we hear it the way they played it?
Subject: A Great Historic Document

Nice show. Acoustic set is super long. Audience in high spirits throughout.
Aud recording is tolerable with some EQ. There's some pretty obtrusive chatting on-mike at points, but it's not all the time. If you categorically can't stand auds then don't bother. If you're OK with auds and are looking for hot performances this is definitely worth acquiring.
Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" May 7, 1970 at the DuPont Gym, MIT, Cambridge, MA, U.S.A.
Thirty nine years ago today the GRATEFUL DEAD were playin' at MIT, where were you?
I couldn't be there in 70' but I made it today.
SirMick has improved this audience recording. I think it's worth the download. Thank you SirMick.
The GRATEFUL DEAD perform an incredible show at MIT. They obviously loved playing MIT and the kids at MIT loved the GRATEFUL DEAD.
I recommend adding this show to your 1970 Audience recordings of the GRATEFUL DEAD.

Subject: Thank you!
I remember coming to this show. It was like a high school sock hop in the gym, stage just a foot or two higher than everyody dancing on the floor. Went from about 8:30 to about 3:30 in the morning. As relaxed and as nice a show as I'll ever see.
A friend I went with that night was dying to hear The Eleven. At one point between songs, Garcia asked if anyone had a number (another JG double entendre, in retrospect), so my frined yelss out, "Yeah, Eleven!" JG turns to him and says: "Thats not a number,' and as you can see, didn't play it!
